Douglas DXF Switch for trout

Hey folks, I just purchased a 4wt, 10' 6", DXF Switch rod for use mostly as a trout rod for swinging flies on tail waters. I wondered if anyone else has used this rod, and what weight heads you found worked well for skagit casting. Looks like Douglas recommends 300 grain. I generally fish unweighted flies like gray ghosts, unweighted wooly buggers and larger soft hackles.

Appreciate any experiences you could share.

Finger Lakes!
